the single most important criteria when replacing Github
joeyh.name/blog/entry/the_sing

Consider all the data that's used to provide the value-added features on top of git. Issue tracking, wikis, notes in commits, lists of forks, pull requests, access controls, hooks, other configuration, etc.

Is that data stored in a git repository?

@joeyh I would be very interested to dig into people who have (or still are, of course) stored issues in a git repo.

A little searching last night turns up these attempts: github.com/dspinellis/git-issu
github.com/neithernut/git-dit
...which still seem active. Otherwise, a handful of discussions, but not much experimentation.

@joeyh Awesome.

BTW, I can't tell you how relieved I am to click on those LWN links and see that they're not stories that I wrote and have forgotten about. That sort of thing happens, let's say, "not rarely."
